Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul will be out at least one more game as he recovers from a left hamstring strain, coach Doc Rivers said following Sunday's 111-102 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Then I got some grief from a reader saying that I should have had you guys lower because the new rules designed to cut down on free throws awarded to players who initiate contact would affect your game greatly.
